Palestine: Report from At-Tuwani

umkahlil says that On Wednesday, October 19 Christian Peacemaker Teams issued an Urgent Action appeal asking to call Israeli military officers and Israeli embassies to demand that the Israeli military fulfill its obligation to protect all people under its jurisdiction in the occupied West Bank, and to question the Israeli military statements that they would not protect At-Tuwani village –near Hebron– against settler violence, since even with their knowledge, Israeli military sources said specifically that the Israeli military would not protect At-Tuwani village. Luckily the calls were answered by Israeli military officers unhappy to be called during the night. We trust they realize that they would not have been getting these calls if the Israeli military had not said it would leave Palestinian villages exposed to settler violence.
